I have been asked to help publicise the “Tell Us Your Story” campaign, which is a fantastic opportunity to recognise and reward people who you feel have really made a difference to someone or a community over the past year. Entries are submitted online at http://www.avivatellusyourstory.co.uk/
Launched by Aviva, for every entry they will donate £1 to the Street to School Programme – a global initiative with the aim of reaching 500,000 children worldwide, helping them get off the streets and back into education.
Did you know….
- 100,000 children under the age of sixteen run away from home every year in the UK
- 1 in 12 young runaways are hurt or harmed while they are away
- There are now only 5 refuge beds for runaway children in the whole of the UK
- 1 in 6 young runaways sleep rough
As a mum those facts are hard to swallow.
